TOKYO -- Apple CEO Tim Cook on Dec. 10 defended the company's record of creating jobs in the U.S., rejecting criticism that the company outsources too much to China, a sticking point that President Donald Trump has constantly picked on.
"We've created well over 2 million jobs in the U.S.," said Cook. "The glass on this iPhone is made by Corning in Kentucky. Several of the semiconductors in the iPhone are made in the United States. There's enormous manufacturing happening in the U.S., just not the assembly of the final product."
